Description
Bottom rule

IBM DS8880 introduces six models integrated with the new High Performance Flash Enclosure Gen2 pair to handle complex workloads and deliver exceptional performance for mission-critical business environments.

The integration of the High Performance Flash Enclosure Gen2 delivers a new and even higher standard of flash performance compared with the previous high-performance flash enclosure. High Performance Flash Enclosure Gen2 is directly attached to the PCIe fabric, enabling increased bandwidth and transaction processing capabilities. The 4U enclosure pair contains two powerful, redundant flash RAID controllers and up to 48 SAS flash cards. The flash RAID controller is specifically designed to help unleash the performance capabilities of flash-based storage. The flash RAID controller design combines the technical expertise of IBM research and development resources, and includes common building blocks with the FlashSystem™.

The flash enclosure pair (feature number 1600) in these models offer up to four times the performance of current flash. The flash enclosure pair can support up to three drive sets, and each drive set has 16 flash cards.

These flash cards are offered in several capacity options:

  • 400 GB (feature number 1610)
  • 800 GB (feature number 1611)
  • 1.6 TB (feature number 1612)
  • 3.2 TB (feature number 1613)
The flash cards used in the High Performance Flash Enclosure Gen2 pair are packaged as 2.5-inch SAS encryption-capable cards which can be added or removed concurrently while the enclosure pair is in use. The flash cards can be configured as RAID 5, 6, and 10 arrays.

Each High Performance Flash Enclosure Gen2 pair supports a pair of RAID controllers in an active/active configuration. The pair of controllers are fully redundant and offer complete, nondisruptive maintenance. The DS8880 offers two types of configurations:

  1. Up to 153.6 TB of raw capacity in a 4U space for DS8884 models 984 and 84E
  2. Up to 307.2 TB of raw capacity in a 8U space for DS8886 models 985, 986, 85E, and 86E
Refer to the following table for more information about supported flash and adapter counts with the three available configuration options.

RAID 6 default for all storage types  

In this release, the default RAID type that will be configured for all types of drives is RAID6. This will deliver significant improvements in reliability compared to RAID5. RAID5 can be configured for drives of less than 1 TB, but this is not recommended and will require a risk acceptance. RAID10 will continue to be an option for all drive types.

Customer-defined digital certificates for authentication

DS8000 supports customer-defined digital certificates to control authentication for GUI, CSM, and Key Server network connections. A digital certificate can be loaded onto the DS8000 to replace the default factory certificate or to replace a previously uploaded certificate that is now obsolete.

Thin provisioning enhancements

Space release functionality at the extent level for ECKD™ volumes is now supported both for simplex volumes and Metro Mirror primaries in full duplex. Software support for this function will be provided on z/OS V2.1 and V2.2 with the program temporary fix OA50675. This functionality fulfills part of the statement of direction from the DS8880 R8.1 Hardware Announcement 116-047, dated May 31, 2016.

In order to provide additional options for data migration, Peer to Peer Remote Copy (Global Copy, Metro Mirror or Global Mirror) is fully supported between provisioned and thin-provisioned volumes. A thin-provisioned target device will become fully allocated during the synchronization process, but the space can be later released using the space release functionality.

Configurable HMC firewall

The configurable DS8880 HMC firewall enables you to restrict external network traffic such that only certain IP addresses can be communicated with. This is especially useful for configuring and securing remote access to the DS8880 HMC by accepting incoming network traffic from certain IP addresses only, for example customer-owned proxies and gateways.

DS8000 Series Command-Line Interface (DSCLI) support for z/OS environment

The DSCLI can be installed through Copy Services Manager (CSM) System Modification Program/Extended (SMPE) and run directly under UNIX™ System Services in a mainframe environment. With this enhancement, you can manage various DS8000 functions such as logical configuration and copy services, without having to perform multiple steps under a separate operating system. The DSCLI SMPE installable package is available when CSM (5698-E01 or 5698-E02) is ordered. DSCLI commands can also be executed directly through the DS8000 GUI.

Improvement of FICON IU pacing

IU pacing provides a flow control mechanism for FICON to manage the transmission of data across the Fibre Channel fabric. Once pacing credits for a port are exhausted, a frame pacing delay occurs which can limit the performance of a single read or write process. To improve FICON read and write performance, especially at longer distances and higher link rates, the IU pacing credits are increased to quadruple the current capability. The increased of pacing credits will only be supported on 4-port 16Gbps Fibre Channel adapters.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

Physical configuration planning

Physical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. A marketing specialist can help plan and select the DS8000 series physical configuration and features. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM DS8880 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-8525).

Capacity and performance planning assistance is also available. Through the use of Disk Magic, a disk marketing specialist can help plan and anticipate performance characteristics for specific workloads by modeling proposed configurations.

Installation planning

Installation planning is a customer responsibility. Information about planning the installation of a DS8000 series, including equipment, site, and power requirements, can be found in the IBM DS8880 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-8525).

Logical configuration planning and application

Logical configuration planning is a customer responsibility. Logical configuration refers to the creation of RAID ranks, volumes, and LUNs, and the assignment of the configured capacity to servers.

Application of the initial logical configuration and all subsequent modifications to the logical configuration is a customer responsibility. The logical configuration can be created, applied, and modified using the DS Storage Manager, DS CLI, or DS Open API, and also the DS8000 GUI.

IBM Global Services will also apply or modify the logical configuration (fee-based service).

Licensed Machine Code planning and application

IBM may release changes to the DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code. IBM plans to make the most current DS8000 series Licensed Machine Code changes available for download by the DS8000 series system from the IBM System Storage technical support website. Not all Licensed Machine Code changes may be available through the support website. If the machine does not function as warranted and a problem can be resolved through the application of downloadable Licensed Machine Code, the customer is responsible for downloading and installing these designated Licensed Machine Code changes as IBM specifies. IBM has responsibility for installing changes that IBM does not make available for you to download. The DS8000 series includes many enhancements to make the Licensed Machine Code change process simpler, quicker, and more automated. A request can be made for IBM to install downloadable Licensed Machine Code changes, however there may be a charge for that service.

Calculating physical and effective capacity

Refer to the IBM DS8880 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-8525) for capacity calculation guidelines.

Encryption planning

Encryption planning is a customer responsibility. There are three major planning components to the implementation of an encryption environment. Review all planning requirements and include them in the installation considerations.

  • IBM Storage Appliance planning
  • IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (SKLM) planning
  • Encryption activation review planning

IBM Storage Appliance planning

IBM Storage Appliance planning is a customer responsibility. Introductory information, including required and optional features, can be found in the IBM Storage Appliance Guide (SC27-8520).

According to encryption best practices, DS8880 requires at least two storage appliances and associated software for each site which has one or more encryption-enabled DS8000 system. One server must be isolated and the others can be of any supported appliance configuration. Any site that operates independently of other sites must have storage appliances for the encryption-enabled DS8000 systems at that site.

It is the customer's responsibility to replicate any key labels and their associated key material across all storage appliances attached to a given encryption-enabled DS8000 before configuring that key label on the DS8000.

Dual storage appliance server planning

DS8000 supports the ability to configure two independent key labels for each encryption-enabled DS8000. This capability enables the use of two independent storage appliance server platforms when one or both storage appliance server platforms are using secure-key mode key stores. This enables the isolated storage appliance server platform to be used in conjunction with a second appliance server platform that is operating with a secure-key mode key store.

For customers desiring NIST 800-131a compliance, IBM SKLM, formerly known as IBM Tivoli® Key Lifecycle Manager, V2.5, or later, is required.

IBM SKLM planning

The DS8000 series supports IBM SKLM V2.5, or later.

Program number VRM Program name
5724-T60 2.5.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for Distributed
5641-KL1/3 2.6.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for Distributed
5698-B35 1.1.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for z/OS
5698-B42 1.1.0 IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager for Storage

To support enterprise-wide encryption-key management, a new set of pricing metrics is now available. These pricing metrics are simpler and more comprehensive for devices, users, and server capacity.

For self-encrypting disk drives, the metric is per client device with the disk drive feature number.

For more information about the licensing requirements and pricing of the metric, refer to Software Announcement 213-470, dated October 29, 2013.

Isolated key server ordering options

  • Single/dual storage appliance server - Feature numbers 1761 and 1762 are available through Machine type Model 2421-AP1: New storage appliance server options are available in addition to the existing SKLM isolated key manager (feature number #0204).
  • Customer acquired isolated key server: Refer to the IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager Installation and Configuration Guide (SC27-5335) for hardware and operating system requirements.

Note: Regardless of the ordering method, customers will need to acquire an SKLM license for use of the SKLM software ordered separately from the stand-alone server hardware.
Note: The licensing for SKLM includes both an install license for the SKLM management software and a license for the encrypting drives.

IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager, V2.6 English publications may be viewed online on the electronic availability date in IBM Knowledge Center.

To access the IBM Publications Center portal, go to IBM Publications Center website.

Encryption activation review planning

Encryption activation is a customer responsibility. IBM encryption offerings must be activated prior to use. This activation is part of the installation and configuration steps required for use of the technology. This installation and activation review is performed by the IBM Systems and Technology Lab Services group.
